    DBX 520 De-Esser - 500 Series

    3 In Stock

    The dbx 520 De-Esser is a 500 series version of the dbx 902 De-Esser. Requiring a compatible 500 format rack unit to operate, the dbx 520 is extremely simple to use. Simply select the frequency you would like to attenuate, select the amount of gain reduction and watch the LED as you listen to the magic! 

      • dbx 520 PRODUCT FEATURES:

        Selectable frequencies range from 8Hz all the way up to 8kHz. One key feature of the dbx 520 is that it does not depend on the level of the signal coming into the unit to function, as it does not have a threshold encoder. Loud and soft signal sources will be effected in exactly he same manner.

        The dbx 520 will help you expertly tame the excessive sibilance often found in vocals and other high frequency dense material. Based upon the legendary dbx 902, the dbx 520’s unique features make it possible to achieve an exact amount of de-essing regardless of variations in signal levels. The 520 allows you to create brilliant, crisp vocals without sibilance!

        With its modular 500 Series based design, the dbx 520 examines the differences in dB between the high frequency and full-bandwidth portions of a signal, allowing de-essing of signals which change in level by as much as 60dB. It features a Frequency Control with range from 800Hz to 8kHz, Gain Reduction Metering and a De-essing Amount Range from 0dB to 20dB.

        Control vocals, drums, percussive instruments and problematic material/reverb combinations with the dbx 520!
